Biggest Loser Blendergrl Style - Day 1

DH went back to work a day early so I started my biggest loser week today. The plan is to take advantage of this week I have off of work and devote myself completely to this healthy lifestyle I have adopted. I vow to earn a minimum of 4 ap each day (hopefully more most days) and eat healthy home made food within my daily allowed points. I will also drink 3L of water each day.

So how did today go? Great! I went to the gym and did 30 min on the elliptical - I pushed it really hard doing intervals to raise and lower my heart rate. The machine said I burned 300 calories (usually it is about 230 for 30 minutes). Then I did 20 minutes of weights and 20 minutes of abs and stretching. Later I took the dog for a brisk half hour walk in the wind and rain. I estimate I got 5 AP today.

I am also going to track my food here this week..

smoothie (carrot juice, apple juice, strawberries, froz yogurt) - 4points

cranberries and chocolate - 2points
ESBM Melancauli soup - 4points
snap peas and dip - 2points

peanut butter on toast - 3points
ESBM Not Humdrumsticks - 3points
peas and squash -4 points
(the chicken recipe was really good - I had DH take the skin off the big package of drumsticks I bought before he left yesterday. Not a fun job - but worth it in the end)
smoothie - 3points
frozen yogurt - 3points
Total 28 points for the day

Yesterday my little niece was over and I decided to test drive a dessert I am planning on making for a dinner party I am throwing next weekend. My helper and I made La Vida Mocha from ESBM. It is a flourless chocolate mousse cake that will only cost you four points (with some cool whip and strawberries). The cake was delicious but the picture is definately lacking in flare - but the one of my little buddy after licking the bowl is priceless. I will post a picture of the dolled up version of the cake after next Friday's dinner party.

The scale said 207.8 this morning... inching my way to Onederland...

I hate taking the skin off of those drumsticks! Life's little frustrations! lol What did you put on the chicken? Oh and is that acorn squash? I made some once but it was stuffed and I didnt care for the "filling" How did you prepare yours? I loved the pics but Im a recipe kinda girl. lol I wanna know details! Haha!

Great job on tracking on your bog!

Yeah for the check in! I wondered how your boot camp was going. :) sounds like it's going great!

Cute little helper you got there, too! The recipes look VERY tasty. I'll have to try the drumstick recipe, too. One of my helpers loves the drumsticks- and I never make them! she has to wait for me to bring home the rotisserie grocery store chicken once in awhile.)

looking forward to your next check in. (and the fancy cake pic, too) :)
